As a relatively new comer to internet commerce, I have indeed learned a great deal about doing business online and internet marketing!

First, it’s not as easy as I perceived it would be.  I thought it would be simple!  Well, I have learned that without my mentor and trainer, I would not have had any idea what to do.  So, if you are thinking about starting an online business, it would be wise to choose one with a really good training program, and proven leadership.

Then, I have heard a lot of negative comments in forums about online businesses and how often someone fails.  I have chosen to listen only to the positive comments and make my business a success.  You have to make the choice, keep on going or give up! Giving up is easy, but failure is not.  I chose to start my own online business because I wanted to succeed.  I refuse to believe I am going to fail!  Anything worth any time and money spent is worth perseverance.

Of course, it helps when you have chosen the right business for you, and a program that has great educational tools at your disposal.  You have to believe in your product, or you have failed from the beginning.  So, check out your options, and choose wisely.  If you choose a business you believe in and you believe in yourself, anything is possible.  Hang in there and don’t give up!

Then there is the expense!  Well, I look at the expenses as an investment in my future.  I have learned in my lifetime, what you can expect for nothing is guess what?  Nothing!  So if you enter into an online business not prepared to invest time, effort and money, what you will get is nothing.  However, some expenses can be minimal, if you have chosen wisely and have great leadership to teach you the tools of the trade. You will, however, have to invest some time and effort.

So, to sum up my experiences so far, perseverance, leadership, educational value, and a program you really believe in are key in choosing your online business endeavors. Choose wisely, and keep on keeping on until you reach your goals.  Great success can be found by any of us if we choose wisely!  And above all, believe in yourself!
